The Backstory:
In October 2008, Jane McLaughlin initiated the first ghost walk tour for Woodbridge, New Jersey, leading to the birth of Haunted History Productions. The tour's success not only reflected Jane's affinity for Halloween and historical narratives but also resonated with her dedication to the Woodbridge arts alliance's vision of uniting diverse communities. Drawing on her role as a dance school owner in the township, Jane ingeniously engaged her students and parents to portray historical figures, while she herself assumed the captivating persona of Miss Cookie. This intricate blend of performance and storytelling soon became the cornerstone of an ever-evolving enterprise. Jane's involvement with the Business Connects network group in Edison propelled her venture further, leading to the establishment of her very own LLC. The artistic collaboration between Jane and photographer Pat Reuben from PM Studios in Edison breathed new life into the company's image through striking event posters, infusing it with a heightened sense of professionalism. Over the span of fifteen years, Haunted History Productions transcended boundaries, stretching its presence across multiple towns and employing a dedicated ensemble of over twenty actors. The narrative journey extended beyond spectral walks as Jane introduced a Murder Mystery Dinner Show, seamlessly adapting to the resurgence of restaurant dining post Covid. Jane's creative prowess extended beyond these ventures; during the Covid-induced lockdown, she finally concluded a twelve-year endeavor—a children's book—which has since become a centerpiece of her engaging interactive story sessions.
